There is another supplement you can try, quercetin.  https://nutritionalpharmacology.wordpress.com/2020/03/21/combating-covid-19-with-zinc-and-quercetin/ my husband says he is feeling so much better since he started taking it.
Thanks,  I just placed an online order for some.  This virus is supposed to make a return visit this winter so I will already have a supply.

Ollie's has stacks upon stacks of pallets of hand sanitizer. 1L bottle, 80%, for $10.

They also have cloth masks, surgical masks, and plastic face shields.

Last time I was in Harbor Freight, they were starting to have nitrile gloves. But only up to size L.

The only thing I haven't seen recently that I'd like to have is Clorox Wipes.

Was that the gel type HS? Ours says they have it for $7.99 but is that a deal?

No, it's pretty liquid and actually looks like a liquor bottle.  You'd need to transfer it to a pump.  I suppose for a store deal it's not bad, but I got 3 gallons of 99% alcohol for just under 30 cents an ounce.  I'll mix with some aloe gel I bought months before this started and then I'll start using my plants again.   Sure would like some MORE!!!  ;)

It's no amazing deal as far as I can tell, but didn't strike me as out of line for high availability of an in-demand product. I picked up a couple.

I'm pretty much off masks and gloves. I manage where I go, self quarantine my hands from my face in public, and use hand sanitizer I keep in the bed of the truck so I don't even have to touch my keys or door handle.

If I get some food or something that can't hang out in the sunlight for a while, or if I took my phone out in a "dirty zone", I use a Clorox wipe.

I was able to find a place that allows me to back-order 3M N95 masks for a reasonable proce.  Expected shipment is Aug 1. You need to be a business, but they don't ask for any proof.

Progeek, Looking at the reviews, it would seem a fair number of people are not receiving the back orders.  Did you place an order and if so, have you received it yet?

I went into Academy Sports in Warner Robins.  I checked the ammunition shelves and they were mostly bare.  There was a sign limit 3 boxes any mix per person per day.  When the checkout clerk asked if I found eerything OK, I said "No".  That there was no ammo.  She asked what kind specifically.  When I told her, she said it was unavailable even online.

That is  why preppers stock up EARLY and stock up OFTEN.

My order is due in 3-4 weeks. So I can't say yet. I have a friend of mine in China sending me a bunch of Respokare anti-viral masks. I had the Curad versions that I liked very much, but we are now out. You can't get these in the USA right now. They are all made in China and not being exported.

Many bulk companies for flats, and other canning supplies are on back order.  If China is not producing tins right now (as suggested by Ice Age Farmer). Some of us may need more jars, etc.  If the grid were to go down, all that good stuff in some of our freezers will have to go somewhere, somehow...

Abigayle i am having a terrible time finding lids. Ace hardware told me when there next shipment would be in and after waiting i ended up with large mouth jars no originals. All the other stores here even walmart have been a bust.

I am so sorry you are having trouble finding canning lids.
A word to the wise...for years every time I went to Walmart I bought 2 packages of regular and wide mouth. Thanks be to God I have a stock of them.
I pray you can find them.

Even Lehman's is out of all lids.

Tattler seems to have both wide and regular available.  It's a slightly different process* and you'll need the jar RINGS you already have but the rubber band and the lid are reusable.

Tattler.com

*You just barely tighten the ring for processing, then after the jar is out of the canner, you tighten it down till the plastic lid seals.
